Jack Sullivan Wins COMP Cams Super Dirt Series 2018 Opener
Defending Champion races to straightaway triumph in Springfield debut

1Springfield, Missouri (03/10/18) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil lifted the lid on Saturday evening at Jerry Hoffman’s Springfield Raceway.

Defending CCSDS Champion, Jack Sullivan surged forward from the fourth-starting spot to take the lead from B.J. Robinson halfway through the feature. Once out front, Sullivan walked away to claim his 25th career triumph by a straightaway. Ninth-starting Gavin Landers marched to a runner-up finish with Robert Baker, Jesse Stovall and Payton Looney completing the Top-5 finishers as the tour made its debut at the Missouri oval.

Tony Jackson Jr. earned the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after passing 11 cars to finish sixth. CCSDS regular for 2018, Shannon Scott was the recipient of the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award after mechanical issues forced him to retire from the feature on the opening lap.

Earlier in the night Raymond Merrill earned the New Vision Graphics position for the 40-lap, $3,000-to-win finale after winning a “March Madness” themed free throw competition amongst the top point earners from heat race action.

Next up for the traveling stars of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series is an Arkansan double shot on March 23-24. For the first time since 2014 the tour returns to Harrisburg, Arkansas’ Old No. 1 Speedway (formerly Northeast Arkansas Speedway) on Friday, March 23 when a $2,000-to-win event will be contested.

One night later – on Saturday, March 24 – the tour will invade Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas). The CCSDS will sanction the second annual Will McGary Memorial. The $2,500-to-win program will see NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin in attendance. He will sign autographs from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m before serving as the evening’s Grand Marshal.
